River Cities Speedway Hosts Gerdau 3rd Leg of the Northern Tour on Friday, Aug. 16

Inside Line Promotions – GRAND FORKS, N.D. (July 30, 2013) – Qualifying is key in every race and Paul McMahan had a huge hill to overcome when the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series made its first of two visits to River Cities Speedway in June.

McMahan timed in 22nd quickest and was forced to rally from that position in the Gerdau 1st Leg of the Northern Tour at the 3/10-mile oval, where he earned the KSE Hard Charger Award after gaining 15 positions to place seventh.

“The biggest thing I learned is to qualify well,” he said. “Every time we go there it changes a lot. It’s a different race track. Early in the night you run the top. In qualifying you have to be really good. By the main event time it gets to two lanes where you can run the top and bottom.”

McMahan and the Outlaws return to fast track on Friday, Aug. 16, for the Gerdau 3rd Leg of the Northern Tour.

Cody Darrah led the final six laps to pick up the victory in June, making him the fifth different winner in the last five features at River Cities Speedway. Seven drivers have earned at least one win during World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series competition at the high-banked track, led by Craig Dollansky with a trio of victories.

North Dakota native Donny Schatz, 20-time series champion Steve Kinser and Joey Saldana have each claimed a pair of wins with Sammy Swindell and Kraig Kinser both winning once.

“It’s the most action-packed track we go to,” McMahan said. “You’re on top of cars at all times. You’ve got to make the right choice at the right time or it could cost you a lot of spots.”
